To brighten your day, here's video from Bernie Sanders' first amiable, upbeat campaign event, a house party in Manchester New Hampshire where people seem some happy to be there. Sanders says he's already got 175,000 pledged volunteers and has raised over $1.5 million, mostly from small donors giving about 40 bucks. Fresh breeze. From a Facebook comment, "Best of luck - this country needs you."

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
